    Talking in Circles: Austin Dillon's new crew chief, XFINITY Recap, Truck Recap,

    in Sports

    Cup- Slugger Labbe new crew chief for Austin Dillon. Replaces Gil Martin. Dillon is 23rd in the points with just 1 top 10 finish. Has 2 wins in XFINITY in 11 starts this season. Thoughts?


     


    Future crew chief changes? Chad Johnston, Jay Guy, Bob Osborne.


     


    XFINITY- Erik Jones wins, nice weekend for the 19 year old driver. swept both the truck race at Iowa and the XFINITY Series race at Chicagoland. Jones is showing he is a top young driver in the sport right now.


     


    Ryan Blaney finished 2nd. He was the fastest car there. Went from the rear of the field after crashing in happy hour and finished runner-up


     


    Chris Buescher manages a decent finish.  5th spot, stayed out on a caution when NASCAR opened/closed pit road. Big benefit for him. Got track position, never gave it up.


     


    Buescher now leads Ty Dillon by 29 points. Dillon finished 9th. Gotta do better in an X-Only race.


     


    Lap 151- Dylan Lupton brings out caution and NASCAR race control calls Pit Road Open. The problem is the flag man either didn’t hear it or had a major brain fart and failed to make the light green coming down pit road. What happened was drivers went down pit road with the red light resulting in a penalty for those drivers. Craziness and sad we even had to deal with it.


     


    Next Xfinity Series race- Daytona, after off weekend.


     


    Trucks- Erik Jones wins as I mentioned before.


     


    Brandon Jones finished in the 2nd, Reddick 3rd, Crafton 4th and Christopher Bell 5th.


     


    Truck points-


     


    Landon Cassill misses X race- good move?

    Jamie Dick’s team closes down. Viva Motorsports- sign of things to come?
